First new roof ... totally confused


  • Lamarite Composite Shingles -- Laminated composite shingles carry a 50 year limited warranty and a warranty referred to as a 7 Year Full Start. The 7 Year Full Start covers any manufacturer defect within the first 7 years, replacement of materials and labor included. The 50 year limited warranty covers the material replacement of shingles except in cases of improper installation, lack of routine maintenance, such as the buildup of moss, leaves, needles or infestation. There is a limited transferability of the warranty. The transfer of warranty is only effective within the first 2 years of the warranty period. These shingles also carry a 5 year limited liability (materials only) against wind damage from wind up to 90 mph.
  • Metalworks Steel Shingles -- Metal shingles carry the same 50 year limited warranty.
  • Heritage Laminated Asphalt Shingles -- Tanko offers several laminated asphalt shingle products. Some of the shingles are treated with an algae-relief product. These shingles carry an "AR" designation. The lines of shingles either offer a 50 year limited warranty, or a 30 year limited warranty. Shingles made to be algae resistant (AR) carry a 10-year limited algae relief warranty which covers material replacement for manufacturers defect during the first 10 years.

I don`t think so,but if the roof is installed correctly,you would never need it !!!---Once again I agree wholeheartedly w/Ed(+Doc )

Ed, TRG, You will always find yourself at a decided disadvantage when you are competing against unfair trade practices. It's bad enough that you can't compete with liars, cheats, jack rabbit roofers, and those whose very presence in the profession is suspect. When you find yourself competing against those that do good work at lower cost because of the shelter of law...Well, thats a slap in the face. It's like a subsidy, a real wind fall for them!

There are only 2 instances in my 24 years of being a roofing contractor where I was "forced" to contact the manufacturer for a warranty claim from a job that we did.

Both instances were really not a warranty problem and neither had any leak problems as well.

One customer did not feel that the color was the same as was shown in the brochures and the sample boards and a taround 10:00 a.m. they did not like the way the color looked. It was acceptable in the later afternoon hours when the sun was not sriking directly on the roof though.

In that instance, I contacted our supply house and they had Tamko come out and surprisingly enough, they paid for us to completely remove the shingles and put on another color.

The second instance was a slight color variation from bundle runs in a 3-tab shingle, also from Tamko. In this instance, they not only paid to remove and replace the entire roof, but they also picked up the extra cost to upgrade to an architectural style shingle in the same color as the 3-tab that was chosen.

I buy alot of Tamko shingle, so that is probably why they covered things that should not have been covered. I think very admirably of that companys attitude regarding keeping their customers satisfied.

As TRG said, if the roof is done correctly, the warranty will not become an issue. But, over 90 % of all residential shingle roofs are NOT done correctly, which would give the manufacturer some wiggle room to find exclusions to the warranty issues.

Last question, I promise. It is now time to pic colors. I stink at this, as does my wife. As you will kinda see below, my house is a very light blue gray. I also have a nice front porch with natural stone. Any thoughts on good colors in the Certainteed Landmark line? Platinum is too light (almost identical to what is on there now). Kinda like driftwood but it might be too brown, Moire Black would work, but wasv looking for something other than straight black.

Based on your experience, what looks best with this color?

black is probably the best look,take color swatches across the street from your house and block out your roof w/ them,then see what you like best,the dark blue is nice ,but some people get tired of it
